White Jacket, or The World in a Man-of-War


Published April 11, 2011


LibriVox recording of White Jacket, or The World in a Man-of-War, by Herman Melville. Read by James K. White.

This is a tale based on Melville's experiences aboard the USS United States from 1843 to 1844. It comments on the harsh and brutal realities of service in the US Navy at that time, but beyond this the narrator has created for the reader graphic symbols for class distinction, segregation and slavery aboard this microcosm of the world, the USS Neversink. (Introduction by James K. White)
